iPhone 5S Hit by Blue Screen of Death (BSOD)

iPhone 5S Blue Screen of Death

There has been a considerable number of reports arising on Apple’s latest iPhone 5S. The Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD), which is typically a common error on Windows PCs, is somewhat an unexpected feature on the iPhone 5S.

This video detailing the issue show that multitasking between apps seems to trigger the BSOD. There have been also reports of random reboots during device use. Malaysia is scheduled to launch the iPhone 5S and 5C on November 1, so this issue could actually threaten sales during launch here in Malaysia.

Apple has released iOS 7.0.2 to primarily fix a security bugs, but the latest version does not address the BSOD and reboot issues. Several threads on Apple’s support forums highlight the problem, and a number of Twitter users have also expressed their frustration. So far there hasn’t been any reply from Apple Inc., but let’s hope this problem is merely as software issue that can be rectified with the next software update.
